While this isn’t my prettiest Hang C&J, its a PR nonetheless! 150#. Up from last week’s 135#.

Open WOD 13.5. The grand finale! A very solid ending to an awesome Open season. Saw a lot of progress since last year and still a lot of room for improvement. After knockin’ out 212 reps last night at @cautioncrossfit with the boys, I’m currently sitting in 7th in Southeast and 30th in the WORLD. Thanks to everyone who’s been supporting me along the way thus far, to @dredaycroassfit for judging/guiding me last night, and as always @busman3406 for the incredible pictures. Time to kick training into high gear for Regionals. The journey has only just begun!

Hi! I know that you and Destiny are serious about eating paleo. I've also been trying to find the perfect balance of whole foods for myself. Are you eating this way because you feel that it is the healthiest or simply to meet certain fitness goals (muscle, weight gain)? I get the issue with gluten but not the deal with all grains? Do you recommend any books? Thanks!

I do have a few book suggestions! Begin with the Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf & It Starts With Food by Dallas and Melissa HartwBoth while both advocate for the eating of animal protein, they both have some minty interesting things to say about grains and legumes and the negative effects that they play on your body. Gluten intolerance is only the beginning. Remember, wheat is a grain. Gluten is a protein derived from wheat. 

I am a firm believer in Paleolithic eating. I would suggest it to anyone. I am in the best health and shape of my life. I have very little inflammation or gas, I have not been sick nor felt sick in an entire year,  excess body fat has fallen off. I am almost always very energetic! I stand by the Paleolithic template not only for the sake of greater physical fitness, but greater health. I am responsible in how I pick out my veggies as well as the meat that I eat. I personally believe from my reading and personal research that mankind did not feel the sting of dies ease until the Agricultural Revolution where we exchanged metabolizing fat as energy for carbohydrates in the form of grains that could be mass produced to sustain large populations.

I respect how anyone wants to eat. This, however, is my very personal conviction through experience. I have been vegetarian, vegan, raw, Maker’s, clean, and paleo. I have never been in better overall health! Start with those two books. There are also some great reads on http://www.whole9life.com. I urge you to investigate for yourself! I do hope that this has helped!
